We Choose Respect: Anti-Bullying Week
Thursday 15 November 2018
This year’s theme for National Anti-Bullying Week is choosing respect over bullying. Ark Boulton highlights the importance of anti-bullying, not only during this week but every day through our virtues character development and code of conduct.
“Following a consultation with over 800 children, teachers and members of the Anti-Bullying Alliance, it emerged that a top priority was showing that bullying is a behaviour choice, and that children and young people can set a positive example by opting to respect each other at school, in their homes and communities, and online.” Anti-Bullying Alliance.
This year, we have teamed up with our Student Support Team to create a campaign of our own. Staff have been sharing what respect means to them and why respecting others differences requires strength of character, maturity and education.
What does respect mean to you and why do you #ChooseRespect?
